What is the best treatment for cellulite? This has been a question I have been asked countless times. I have heard many diets and exercises that have promised to get rid of cellulite quickly. But what do you actually need to do to get rid of cellulite?
Many people are misled by scams, fads, and weight loss products that claim they can give you results in a short period of time. They usually promise dramatic results and fast weight loss. However, these products rarely provide long term results or take off your fat.
Cellulite occurs because of two large sources, the fat deposits, and connective tissue. Getting rid of cellulite requires you to be able to reduce the size of your fat deposits and improve the firmness of your skin.
Fat gets trapped under the skin when you are sitting, standing, walking, etc. This fat causes your body to lose more water than normal. The moisture that your body loses causes your skin to sag and stretch and as a result, the dimpled look of cellulite is caused. Not only do your fats, but also your connective tissue create this dimpled appearance.
Exercise is needed to help reduce the number of fat cells in the fatty areas. Many experts recommend cardiovascular exercise. High-intensity cardio exercise, such as running or bicycling, burns a lot of calories, especially the fat-burning ones. However, be sure you know the level of intensity that is suitable for you.
You also need to choose the correct intensity, since some people can get burned out after just 20 minutes. There are aerobic machines that use the whole body to give you maximum benefits and many people find this easier on their bodies.
It is important to incorporate other forms of physical fitness into your daily routine. Jumping jacks, weight lifting, stretching and strength training are all good options. As well, swimming is beneficial as it uses many of the same muscles that are used while exercising.
Of course, the more active you are the better you will become at burning fat, and also you will have to be careful to monitor how much fat you are burning. Therefore, you need to be able to have regular intervals to help regulate your metabolism.
Try not to rely on a cellulite cream as a way to reduce your cellulite. Many products that are available now that claim to be cellulite reducing creams can actually make your cellulite worse. Since cellulite is often caused by toxins in the body, using a cellulite cream can have very little effect.
A popular cellulite reduction is also to get your diet up to date and incorporate more protein and carbohydrates into your meals. While these two types of foods are high in calories, they are very low in fat, which is what we all need to have to lose the weight.
So is cellulite reduction possible? Yes. Do your homework and you should find a cellulite reducing exercise or supplement to help you achieve the firm, smooth skin you desire.
